- Family-friendly East Sussex glamping on a converted double decker bus
- Ashdown Forest and Bluebell Railway within a 10-minute drive
- Rooftop deck with gorgeous views, hot tub and fairy lights
All aboard for an East Sussex glamping stay that’s likely to stick in the memory for quite some time… Parked up in a pretty part of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty about 20 minutes’ drive from Uckfield is Live The Adventure Bus, where you will indeed spend the night cosied up inside a converted bus all of your own.
And this is not just any old bus – the double decker vehicle has been refurbished to the highest standards, making it a fabulous and unusual place for a family break or an escape with your other half. The interior has that warm and cosy feeling that comes from being decorated with lots of natural wood, and the upper deck… well, just wait till you see what’s up there…
So what will you find inside? Well, the ground floor houses a fully equipped kitchen (with fridge, cooker and a coffee machine for that vital morning kickstart), a dining/seating area and a comfy double bed with fabulous views out over the fields.
Climb the wood-clad stairs and you’ll be taken up to a bunk bed area that’s intended for kids but has 360º views that may well make you consider claiming it for yourselves. And then the real highlight… head out onto the deck for a gorgeous hot tub lit by fairy lights and with splendid countryside views.
All in all, it’s rather fabulous – but don’t tuck yourselves away here for your whole stay, as the area is equally enticing. Winnie the Pooh’s stamping ground Ashdown Forest is close by, as is the Bluebell Railway, or a maize maze, or llama trekking…

The real experts on the local area are of course the people that own the site, and thoughtfully they’ll send you on some suggested itineraries of places to go and things to do, tailored to your interests.
If you’d like to get a sneak peek of what might feature on the lists, you could have a look around the High Weald AONB for walking trails in places like Ashdown Forest (10 minutes’ drive) or attractions like the National Trust sites at Sheffield Park (five minutes) and Standen House (20 minutes). The gardens at Wakehurst (15 minutes) are fabulous too.
Brought the kids along? There are lots of lovely animals to meet at Blackberry Farm Park (20 minutes), steam trains to ride on the Bluebell Railway (five minutes) and woolly friends to take for a walk at Spring Farm Alpacas (five minutes). No kids around? Maybe a tour and tasting at Bluebell Vineyard Estates (15 minutes’ walk) might be more your style…
